On the Lake

Jan Lake sits on the Canadian Shield, or North American Precambrian shield, located in Northeastern Saskatchewan in the northern boreal forest. Jan Lake is characterized by numerous islands, bays, and sandy beaches. The islands provide anglers with many excellent spots to cook shore lunches and enjoy the scenery and wildlife. Pelicans, bald eagles, loons, and ducks are commonly spotted, and sightings of black bears, moose, caribou, and lynx are not unheard of.

While it may seem intimidating at first, newcomers can easily access Jan Lake with a map or GPS. The lake has many reefs, many of which are marked with buoys; however, boaters must use caution as there are many hidden reefs. Guiding service is also available.
